The NFL has done a lot of confusing things when it comes to COVID-19 compliance. It has begun the process of blowing down a house.
Yahoo Sports’ Charles Robinson reported that the NFL fined Raiders $ 500,000, fined coach Jon Gruden $ 150,000, and removed the sixth round pick for protocol violations resulting from handling of a positive test of Trent Brown last month.
The Federation previously fined Gruden $ 100,000 and the team $ 250,000 for Gruden’s failure to wear masks. Raiders are also fined $ 50,000 for leaving an unauthorized person in the locker room, and many players are fined for attending an indoor event without a mask away from the workplace.
The punishment will be further increased in the event of further violations from the Raiders, whom Gruden recently declared “pioneering” in defeating the virus.
